GG&A Rules and Resources Center
Welcome to the Guitar Gear & Accessories -
Rules and Resource Center

This thread will comprise two main parts.

1. Rules
2. Resources



Forum Rules

These are in addition to any general forum Rules (No porn, links to porn, links to viruses, flaming, overuse of cursing/swearing). Any infraction of the Rules of UG and its forums will either result in a closed/deleted thread, and/or a warning/banning.

Forum use: Put your thread/question in the correct sub-forum. Amp questions go here in GGnA. Moderate customizing or modification questions can go here but otherwise, may be better suited in GB&C. They handle amp and pedal questions there as well as guitars. Bass guitar and bass amp questions go in the Bass subforum. Drums in drums, etc.

Stickies: Read all the stickies before posting a thread, because they will help you by either giving you more information, or answering your question. If we feel that the thread you create is covered by a sticky, your thread will be closed.

Necrobumping: If you are searching through the archives, please take a look at the thread date before you post. If the thread is more than a month or two old, please don't post in it unless there's a very good reason (e.g., you started the thread and there's been an update.) If you really have something to say or ask about the subject, start a new thread.

Low-content or opinion posts: Please don't just post half a line asking what the best guitar is, or two sentences about how you like stratocasters. Don't ask "does anyone else use (product available at Guitar Center)?" Because the answer is obviously yes. Have a question; be specific; give us information. It helps us give good answers, and it keeps the forum useful for people who need help.

Multiple threads: Please don't make multiple threads on the same topic, and especially don't copy and paste one thread to multiple subforums Take a minute to make sure it's in the right place and you'll get the help you need.

Search: Use the search button every time you even think about posting a thread. Please don't bump threads older than six months after using the search function.

Musical tastes: The Instrument forums are not for discussing musical preferences or to bash other people's musical tastes.

Flaming: There is a zero tolerance policy on flaming. All posts harassing, insulting, disrespecting, offending or showing attitude to another member will be met with a warning or banning depending on severity.

Trolling: Trolling is where you post intending to get a negative reaction or to start a flamewar. An example is posting 'all Fenders suck' without saying that its your opinion or justifying it. This will be met with a warning or ban depending on severity and your track record.

Using discriminatory terms: Any use of terms such as 'gay', 'homo' or '******' in a derogatory fashion will result in a warning or possibly ban.

Spam: For the most part, posts in a thread must have relevance to the question asked by the threadstarter. All threads created should be appropriate for the forum they are created within. Any posts considered 'spam' will be met with a warning.

Advertising: Any advertising of other websites (such as forums, myspace or band websites, ebay other other auctions, stores etc.) will be met with a ban.

Versus threads: Threads like 'Metallica vs. Megadeth?', or 'Gibson vs. Fender?' are not allowed.

Multiple threads: Do not start more than one thread on the same subject. These will be closed.

Preference threads or Versus threads: Do not start threads about what you prefer over other brands, or what you feel like advertising about because you think it's the greatest. If you are asking what other people prefer, that is fine. However do not start threads that just ask people which of multiple brands/models/whatever they prefer as these threads are useless. If you want to start such a thread it must contain some grounding and intelligence.

Bumping: Do not bump your threads. This means don't post in your own thread in order to bump it to the top of the forum list. The general bumping rule is 24 hours. Also, don't bump dead threads from a year ago. Similarly, do not Necrobump old threads that are not yours as mentioned above (Necrobumping).

Banned Threads

Here is a list of threads which are forbidden here.

The primary goals of this list are to keep GG&A uncluttered and to make things as efficient as possible for those looking for help.

The following threads are not to be posted:

Advertising or Promotion Threads: Do not advertise. You will be banned. Since there has been some confusion about what advertising entails, here are a few examples of advertising:

-Starting a thread about your own business, your friend's business, etc. (We do occasionally make exceptions if you have useful input/content, so PM a mod if you think you have something of value to contribute).

-Threads whose primary content is a link to a blog, youtube video, press release, kickstarter, etc.

-Threads whose primary purpose is to link or promote a contest, Facebook page, or third party group.

If you're not sure whether or not something you want to post is advertising, PM a moderator. We're here to help. If you want to advertise on UG, you can do it officially by emailing

"Listen to my clips" Threads
We're sure you're very proud of your new song - go ahead and post it in the Recordings section. Got a sound clip showing off your new gear? Post it in the Ultimate Gear Demo thread. Please don't post threads just to get people to listen to your clips. . Same goes for Youtube videos. There are places to show off your playing but this isn't one of them.

Settings threads:
Everyone's rig is different; everyone's ear is different. Settings that work for you do not work for the next person. Therefore, settings threads are not allowed as they are not productive. If you really think you need settings, use the Settings Thread

"Vs." threads:
Pitting gear against other gear is not allowed. That's not to say you can't ask, "which of these two wah pedals will work best for my styles?" Rather, do not post a thread asking "which of these two wah pedals is better," since that doesn't help anyone and only leads to arguments.

Side note: "Artist A" vs. "Artist B" threads will be closed and the user banned outright.

"Best" threads:
Essentially the same as the Vs. thread; "best" is an adjective which simply can't be applied to gear. It's all subjective. Again, asking what would work best for you within your budget for your styles of music is definitely an acceptable thread.

"What strings/picks does everyone use?"
We're all sick of these threads by now. If you're really interested, use the search bar to find a few dozen old versions of these threads.

Off topic threads:
Please do post Off Topic threads such as:

-Ads of any kind
-Blatant spam
-"Why does everyone hate the (spider, MG, etc etc)" threads
-"Game" threads
-Youtube review threads- don't just post your youtube video or a review from another site. Posting content that already exists elsewhere on the internet in order to draw more attention to is not productive, and it clogs up UG with duplicate and unoriginal material. It is also very often a tool used by people looking to exploit UG for advertising or stealth marketing.

New Gear Day Threads

All New Gear Day threads must contain two of the following three items:

1.) Pictures of your gear (no google/stock images)
2.) Clips/video
3.) A Review.

Threads without these requirements will be closed and the thread starter will be warned.

In addition to this, the only items that warrant a new gear thread are amps, cabs, and pedals. Any thread started for other items will be closed and the thread starter will be warned.

Also - New Gear Day anticipation threads are not allowed. If you don't have the piece of gear yet, your thread will be closed.

How to ask for advice -

What ...(Insert Gear?)... Threads

(what you should include to get good advice)

Budget? - What is practical for you and what is your limit?

Genres? - What style do you play mostly, fav guitarists, do you need cleans, etc?

New or Used? - Lots of great amps out there used, especially in a down economy.

Home or Gig? - Also important. Maybe you do both. Jamming with a drummer can be considered 'gigging' but you won't have a PA etc.

Closest City? - We aren't here to stalk you but we need to know where you are in the world roughly and we can help further if we know what city you are in (ie craigslist, local shops, Guitar Center used section, etc)

Current Gear? - Also good for us to know.

Paragraphs of information about yourself are nice but we really just need the answers to these 6 things.

How to give advice

(what you should consider in order to give good advice)

Give advice, not what you would do: This is the most important rule. Advice means stepping into someone else's shoes, not telling the threadstarter what you'd do if you were him/her.

READ the original post: Don't just post away! Read what the threadstarter is asking you!

Give sensible advice: If someone says "I'm 12 years old, I have $200 and that's all I'll have for the next 5 years (I have no job)", DON'T advise them to save up for an ENGL amp, or a Gibson Les Paul, it's not going to happen.

Don't recommend something you haven't tried: Just because you think something is good, doesn't mean it is. So if you haven't tried it, don't talk about it!

Do not be rude: Just because you think the threadstarter is stupid, s/he isn't! We all started somewhere, so be nice about it.

Give reasons: Don't say "such-and-such a product ROCKS!". Say "I like it because of its bright, shimmering clean channel" or something like that. That's much more helpful, especially if the threadstarter hasn't tried the product in question before.

Experience with the product: Even if you've only played the product once, give us your opinion on it so we know where you're coming from.

Location: Do not recommend things that are not available to the threadstarter or is too pricey because of import taxes.

Don't know? Don't post.

The rest of this thread will flow like this. We will provide:

A.) A Process for Contributing Content

B.) Links to other Threads for additional Reference or Reading

C.) General Information as it relates to Guitar Gear and Accessories

A Process for Contributing Content

First, a little background as to how we got here. Some of us wanted to create some kind of 'Catch All' thread that is a categorized resource for people looking for help or to just learn more a general topic of interest. Gumbilicious helped push this along a bit by introducing the idea of actually creating content for such an initiative. Because this could be rather daunting to try to pick and choose and vote on what goes in and what doesn't I've made the decision to have our Resource Center Thread be a 'Hot Linking' thread basically. That way the individual threads/topics can stand on their own and be 'bumped' and discussed or even debated further. It will also make voting on new topics/threads a little easier. Ragingkitty has helped greatly as well in this department. Roc8995 suggested we also consolidate the Stickies and Rules while we are at it to clean up GG&A a bit and put everything in once place essentially. It is also important for us to give credit where credit is due.

There are 4 basic parts to this section as it relates to Content.

1.) Goals and Objectives
2.) How things are structured
3.) How content should be created and evaluated
4.) How to contribute

Goals and Objectives

The Goal of this thread is simple. It is here as a central location to provide rules and help people get a start on locating information that may be helpful as it relates to electric guitar and guitar amplification.

The Objectives are to create, collect, centralize and organize information in a meaningful way. It will also serve as a central point for rules, regulations and recommendations.
It will take some of the ideas already started by Dave_MC, Roc8995, 311ZOSOVHJH, Gumbilicious and others and put them into one central place.


Because this is a rather large undertaking, we need some structure on how it is organized and how people can contribute. Obviously, we wanted the Rules listed first. Next we will lay out some of the ground rules for contributing and approving content. We will dedicate several posts to this topic. We will also provide a basic rating system that will help to add some conformity and a system for feedback. We will then dedicate several posts to paste some basic information and then several posts to provide 'Hot Links'. Hot links are URL web links to both threads/articles/blogs inside of Ultimate-Guitar and potentially articles/web sites that are external to Ultimate-Guitar.

Content and Hot Links will need to be reviewed, rated and approved first. For example, there are some threads that I consider to be rock solid that others may only give a 2 or a 3 (out of 10). We will be asking that new Content to be considered be brought to the attention of the reviewer community first (more on this later). The best way to accomplish this is to create your own thread (after careful consideration) and ask for it to be reviewed (see below).

We can't type out all of the possible information that is out there and incorporate it into one thread so the Hot Link concept works best. Additionally, each thread can then stand on its own. It can be commented on by any member of UG and survive (or fail) on its own merit. We will also consider content and web sites from other sites but they will have to be well known and well respected sites.

Content Creation

This is a very important aspect for us. We don't want to just be a 'hot-linking' thread and that's it. We need some of our brighter users to step up to the plate and create something. There are tons of topics. We have some very very smart people here in GGnA and I think we owe it too ourselves to get some of this knowledge documented for of our users and future users.

If you've ever wanted to ask a question but were afraid to or didn't know exactly how to search for it we have you in mind. Conversely, how many times have you seen the same question asked over and over again? "Will this ohm cab fit my amp?" How many times have you personally typed the same response only to wish afterward that you had saved it to a file for future use. Do you remember what it was like starting out when all of this was foreign material and you really had no idea where to start?

So, if you would be so kind to contribute or if you have some ideas on ways to generate content please post up in this thread or send myself, gumbilicious, ragingkitty or Roc8995 a PM.

Soon, I will be creating some more structure around this so we can categorize our topics and place emphasis on areas that are lacking in content. Also, we are interested in external sites that you may use a lot for reference that we can add to our master 'central' thread. comes to mind. Nonetheless, there will always be someone who disagrees with something but we can't please everyone. Therefore, we will need all content and links to be reviewed and scrutinized for accuracy and legitimacy.

Peer Reviews on proposed content and links

We need volunteers that are willing to review content (both internal and external) and provide feedback to the Group. I have solicited the help from some longer term respected UG'rs that post in GG&A fairly frequently (aka the Group). These Group members should be fairly well versed in the technical background of electric guitar, amps and electronics in general. Having above average spelling, grammar and sentence structure is a must. Paragraphs and logical flow is very important as well. You may also be called upon to simply make decisions on 'go' or 'no go' items and possibly make edits to other people's work.

You can also feel free to send a PM to myself, gumbilicious, and ragingkitty.

Thanks. We need your help.

Evaluation Criteria (contributions so far by ragingkitty)

As we start putting together content, we'll need to evaluate their quality, and provide comments on changes if necessary before the content is Hot Linked. To this end, if we have a qualitative approach to commenting on content, the gap between our expectations and the work done may not be very clear to the author.

Furthermore, with a rating system, if we have multiple evaluators on an article, a rating will give a clear idea of the expectations of the evaluators vis-a-vis the quality of the work done. In addition, when providing evaluations, there should be accompanying commentary for each rating, so the author knows how to change and improve the article.

So, we propose the following criteria for evaluating articles. Note that each criteria should be rated on a 10-point Likert scale (1-10). A rating of 10 is most positive, and a rating of 1 is most negative. There is no neutral point. However for specific dichotomy anchors, please refer to the descriptive below each criteria.

(continued below)

311ZOSOVHJH 02-14-2013 12:21 AM

Evaluation Citeria (continued)

Areas to be rated:

a.) Subject Matter Handling

We need to evaluate how well the author has approached to explain and present the subject matter. This section covers things like presentation of information and explanation of concepts. Rating scale anchors: Please rate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is that the subject matter handled poorly, and 10 is subject matter addressed and handled well.

b.) Article Structure & Flow

This section covers the arranging and structuring of information in the article, as well as how well the article flows from concept to concept. This will cover things like the level of detail for each concept and if the article is easy to read and follow. Rating scale anchors: Please rate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a.) the article is poorly structured, hastily paced and has poor reading flow, and 10 is b.) Article is well structured, well paced and has good reading flow?

c.) Independence

All articles should present a fairly unbiased approach to the subject matter, and should not demonstrate overt preference or bias towards one area without clearly stating it is the author's personal opinion. Also all articles should not contain too many personal preferences. Rating scale anchors: Please rate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a.) Article has bias, and 10 is b.) Article is independent?

d.) Accuracy

All articles should be well researched and accurate in the information presented. Rating scale anchors: Please rate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a.) Article content is inaccurate and has misleading information, and 10 is b.) Article is accurate with no errors.

e.) Language

The quality of the written language in the article as well as the suitability of the language. Overly technical or marketing related language should be avoided. Rating scale anchors: Please rate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a.) Language is poor, and ineffective in conveying the subject matter, and 10 is b.) Language use is suited to the subject matter, and very effective in conveying the subject matter?

f.) Content & Clarity

This covers how clearly and well explained content is in the article. Also, this section captures the quality and age of information presented. Rating scale anchors: Please rate on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is a.) Content is poorly research and explained, and 10 is b.) Content is well research and explained?

How to Contribute Content?

Basic steps:

1.) Consider your content, the evaluation process and your readers.
2.) Create your content in a UG Thread, Article or Blog.
3.) Get your content approved.
4.) Get your content Hot Linked.

This aspect is still a bit in flux and we are currently open to suggestions but here is the basic idea.

Firstly, you don't need to get permission to create something. Secondly, if a topic has been covered, that doesn't mean you cannot create more content on the same subject. Lastly, please follow the basic structure and create your content with the evaluation criteria outlined above.

To elaborate further:

You do not need to get permission from anyone to create content. We are not really interested in comments like - 'Hey, I can do something on speaker cabinets'. If you want to do an thread/article/blog on speaker cabinets then just do it. Do it right and follow the process. Your thread/article/blog will need to be evaluated and approved before it is Hot Linked in here anyway. The basic idea behind this rule is that lots of people offer to do things but few act on it.

Secondly, if someone says they are going to do a topic on speaker cabinets then that may cause someone else to decide not to do one. I personally would rather see 2 or 3 threads/articles/blogs on any given topic then just one. It is pretty hard to create a topic article that captures everything anyway and I wouldn't want 1 article to be the GGnA 'end of story' type thing. So basically, the more the merrier until further notice.

Lasty, it is important to follow the basic structure as we have outlined it. Please write your thread/article/blog with the evaluation criteria in mind. Use <space> as your friend, for example, and write in coherent sentences with your thoughts broken down into paragraphs. Links to supporting material is great and also recommended, but keep in mind those links will need to be evaluated as well for relevance etc. Pictures are great too. Pictures speak a thousand words.

Now, to get down to it. What we've decided is best for now is that we would ask individual contributors to create their own Thread, Article or Blog within Again, we are looking for UG based content. That doesn't mean that outside articles or websites are not permitted though. For example, is a great resource for unbiased information. Either way, they will be evaluated the same way. So basically create your content, get it approved and then we'll Hot Link it in here.

Basic steps:

1.) Consider your content, the evaluation process and your readers.
2.) Create your content in a UG Thread, Article or Blog.
3.) Get your content approved.
4.) Get your content Hot Linked.

For now: Please submit your thread/article/blog to 311ZOSOVHJH, gumbilicious or ragingkitty. We will take it from there.

1.) Consider your content as it relates to and what our site and users need/want or would generally like to read or learn more about. It doesn't have to be seven pages long. If it is pertinent and you think someone will benefit from it then give it go. The reviewing committee will determine if you need to add or tweak content. Create your content with the evaluation process in mind. Are you hitting on all of the suggestions? Also, keep our readers in mind. We are not super technical on this site so being overly technical may lose some readers. Conversely, stating basic things without a lot of thought or substance doesn't help either.

2.) Again, as discussed already, we are asking users to create their content in a Thread, Article, or Blog. However, if you are uncomfortable in doing that at first we would welcome a submission to the review committee using a .txt or .doc file or whatever. Obviously you may need to email that or upload it to a hosting site like or similar and then provide a link to it.

3.) Getting your content approved is the next step. Once you have created your content then you can submit it in one of 2 basic ways. You can link your thread/article/blog into this 'RC' thread using the Reply function. Simply state 'For Consideration for RC (Resource Center). A preferred method will be to PM one of our designated reviewers from our evaluation committee. Again, the PM title should read something like 'For Consideration for RC'.

For now: Please submit your thread/article/blog to 311ZOSOVHJH, gumbilicious or ragingkitty. We will take it from there.

Important Note: All approved threads/articles/blogs will provide credit to the author.

As discussed, if you are more comfortable in having someone review your content BEFORE creating a thread/article/blog then we definitely will accommodate you. Again, a bit of flexibility will be needed as to the best method to communicate back and forth. Some prefer Private Message, some prefer email, some prefer external hosted sites, etc. Additionally, we have different reviewers for different topics based on their experience. More to come later on now this will be broken down.

4.) Congratulations: Your content has been approved. Because this is my (311ZOSOVHJH) thread I am the only one that can post the Hot Links. Once a thread/article/blog has been approved it can be submitted to me either by PM or by posting it in this thread. I will then Hot Link it. You can also email it to me at: I prefer PM. If I get hit by a bus or take an extended camping trip you can also PM a moderator for Guitar Gear & Accessories. If I leave UG permanently or just flat out die then you are all screwed.

Currently Roc8995, Tnfootballfan62, and MatrixClaw are our moderators and have been very supportive of this effort.

OK. I think we are about ready to go.

I'm opening the thread to the general population for suggestions, criticism, and ideas to make it better. This is a good community we have and I want as much involvement as possible.

I'm going to reserve a few more posts for the future Just In Case. We can always delete them if we don't need them.

At first I thought it was going to be over my head but you did a really good job of explaining things. I'm going to submit this to Arby911 and ragingkitty for review but from what I can see this will be a great addition. I look forward to more good stuff from you.

^^ Thanks :)

Here is my review:

a.) Subject Matter Handling 10

b.) Article Structure & Flow 9

c.) Independence 9

d.) Accuracy 9

e.) Language 8

f.) Content & Clarity 8

Overall rating of 8.8. I recommend to RC

it'll probably get revised with more graphics later. i find the graphics do quite a bit to help you form the concept in your head.

good to hear it's approachable. i was trying to include much of stuff you get from sound engineering books without it being too dry and esoteric.

i had a quick skim of that and it looks good, gumbi, but i think that might be over my head... not much point in my checking it, in other words :haha :cheers:
